COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Editor’s Note: The 6.5% abv European version is listed under St Feuillien

Our second collaboration with Brasserie St-Feuillien, Friendship Brew, is a Black Saison that blends European and American hops, Belgian yeast and a cache of secret spices. The aroma and flavors are enticing, with delicate fruitiness, subtle spice and rounded roast malt characteristics. Bottle conditioning provides lively carbonation and rich beer foam for a luscious body and a lean, dry finish.

Ungstrup (29665) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JAN 19, 2013
Bottled. A black beer with a huge brown head. The aroma has notes of roasted malt, bread, caramel, and a bit of spices. The flavor is sweet with notes of cardemomme, yeast, roasted malt, and bread, leading to roasted finish. The style doesn’t impress me.

Papsoe (25083) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAR 20, 2013
Bottle 33 cl. Courtesy of yespr. Pours a clear black with a reddish hue and a small, creamy beige head. Odd aroma, licorice and white pepper, somewhat vperfumy too. Medium body, some roast, a little cardboard and a rather bitter finish. A strange hybrid - the idea behind this was probably better than the actual result. But a good looking beer it is.... 200313

Black Country Beano. Outbound train tasting! Dark brown beer, not quite clear. Tidy pale tan head. Light softish palate, airy and a little dry. Tangy Coca Cola and generic fruits. Mellow spice. Little cinnamon. Finishes light and dry with a little spice bitterness in the aftertaste.

fiulijn (15060) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 26, 2013
Courtesy of Jan (fonefan)
Very dark color, almost black, with generous brown creamy head. The aroma is herbal (sage and mint), then spicy (black pepper), finally a bit smelly (feety), and with light chocolate aroma. Light and dry mouthfeel; accent on the roasted/ashy malts (too much), with good and lean resiny hops, minty and peppery touch, with a hint of cinnamon; strong ashy bitterness, excessive.
A very confused beer, incoherent blend of everything.
